International Cooperation VFS - News

To whom it may concern,

we are writing you from the Danube Rectors’ Conference to let you and your students know about the ‘’Danubius Young Scientist Award 2018’’.

Created in 2011 by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM), this award will be granted to 14 young scientists - one in each country that is part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region, and we are especially interested in encouraging universities from Bosnia and Herzegovina to participate.

It rewards young scientists of every field that have carried out –or are still doing it- a research project related, somehow, to the Danube Region. The aim is to engage the students in the scientific examination of the multifaceted issues and questions through the Danube Region.


This is a great opportunity for one of your students to be granted with a honorific prize and also the award will be endowed with 1.200 EUR for each winner-. That’s the reason we would like to have as many candidates as possible and we highly encourage all the universities connected along the Danube Region to Participate.


Candidates can come from all scientific disciplines.

The nomination of the award candidate cannot be made by the candidate himself/herself but he or she has to be nominated by their hosting scientific organization (university, academy of sciences, etc.).

The award criteria are the following:
-          Scientific excellence and innovative approach of the academic work
-          Thematic relevance of the scientific work for issues/problems of the Danube Region
-          Relevance of the scientific work beyond the national borders
-          Potential of the candidate (for example: integration in international networks, participation in scientific projects, publication history, experience in teaching, etc.)
-          No formal age limit - BUT Limitation to participants that have received their master/PhD max. 5 years ago (meaning after 1st of January 2013).
Submissions of candidates holding only a bachelor degree will not be accepted.
